“As Chicago’s mayoral candidates stockpile their war chests, they’re all falling behind Mayor Rahm Emanuel in total funds raised.
The power of incumbency not only helps the mayor raise his own money, but it also tends to discourage wealthy business owners from contributing to other candidates because of potential backlash.
But Rocky Wirtz bucked that trend with a large donation to Paul Vallas. Wirtz gave the Vallas campaign a total of $200,000 through five companies he owns.”
